Marathon - 19th & Spruce

Marathon has served the neighborhoods of Philadelphia for over 25 years as a family-run restaurant group. We serve well-made American classics, and strive to source the freshest food locally available to us, including from our own Marathon Farm in Brewerytown, Philadelphia. Our favorite farm to table items include our grass-fed Cheesesteak, free-range Turkey Plate, and fluffy Omelettes made with cage-free eggs.


We love food, but more importantly we create the food that people love to eat. We set out each day to provide our guests with a complete feel-good dining experience in a casual setting. We offer warm and personal hospitality rooted in a real concern for our guests' experience and we believe that everyone should be able to afford delicious food. We bring people together through food, personal connections and artistic spaces.

"We live in the neighborhood and frequent this Marathon and the one on 16th. Just a terrible service experience this time. Forgot drink orders and just inattentive. Blamed it on covering outside tables but the place just wasn't that crowded."

"I came from NY to see a show, and wanted to find a reasonably priced restaurant close to the venue. Marathon, 19th & Spruce fit that criteria and much more. The staff at the door and the wait staff were all very friendly and helpful. The food was absolutely delicious, from the appetizer sampler to the swordfish main course. I'm still talking about my meal a week later. Great restaurant!"

"I usually really love Marathon, and have been coming here for years, but this visit was lacking. The limited menu between lunch and dinner was not a selection of their best options, and everything on it was plain. I can get a cheeseburger with bacon on it anywhere, and nothing about it made it seem like a 'Marathon Burger'. The Center City Sandwich was so big it took me half my meal to flatten it into manageable proportions, but it was good once I got through that. Arugula and mozzarella with balsamic is such a springy combination. They had no reservations open on Open Table for 3:30, so we made one for 4 and checked early to see if they could seat us. Turns out the place was pretty empty, and they sat us right away. Our waitress was lovely, and the service was decent. For a fan, I was underwhelmed by somewhere that usually does a fabulous job."
